Bio
Łukasz Gos-Furmankiewicz (M.A. Law)
Legal Translator, Sworn Translator
English-PolishPolish-English
Łukasz Gos-Furmankiewicz is a legal translator based in Warsaw, Poland. Accredited as a sworn translator by Polish Ministry of Justice, following rigorus state examination in both English-Polish and Polish-English. Law school and translation school at the University of Warsaw. Graduate of the Centre for American Law Studies at the same university, a collaborative project with the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Completed Ph.D. programme, dissertation pending, rounding out 12 years of legal education that did not lead to legal practice as a career. Active blog writer and conference speaker.

Typical workload of this translator includes (plenty of):

  • contracts
  • corporate governance
  • statutes, regulations, policies
  • opinions, memos, advice
  • public procurement
  • litigation and courts
  • law firms and their activities
  • law reviews and the academia

… across the following areas of business activity and legal practice:

  • realty & construction
  • transport
  • energy
  • IT
  • banking, insurance, taxation
  • events, media, internet
  • administration, public utilities
  • employment, social responsibility

As a Latin translator, Łukasz Gos has mostly translated texts relating to history, religion and the law, from a mediaeval patent of nobility and arms from the Holy Roman Chancery or Florentine guild charaters, through renaissance court cases or Polish-Lithuanian property conveyance, down to documents issued by modern Church authorities. On the lighter side, he has once translated a menu card for a pharma party into Latin (but did not get a token copy, despite asking).

Even between Polish and English he takes care not to be just a law grad repackaged as a legal translator. Some of his more exotic past translations include published notes from a round-the-world biking tour, catalogue entries for underwater photo equipment, anniversary stories for a sports car manufacturer, articles relating to social and political changes in the 20th century, or an entire dating portal repurposed for the social-media needs of a community of young patients with diabetes and their parents. He has also translated copy for LSPs as end clients.

Underneath it all, he has a gamer's heart, knowing how to rush and swerve and save a galaxy or keep back the Mongol hordes and do a couple of other cool things that normal people don't have much enthusiasm for. His gaming past includes a tour of duty as the head news editor of a large community portal, among other things too many to list. His current focus is on the grand strategy and car racing genres, with some adventure titles, RPGs and historical economic simulators down the pipeline, waiting for a longer holiday.

Familiar with hardware, too, he feels at ease diving under the desk with a Philips screwdriver in hand, which allows to forget about the outside world for a couple of hours (or days). No longer an active coder, he nonetheless continues to believe that legal drafting and computer programming are essentially two faces of the same thing and to treat programming languages a bit like real-world languages, and sometimes the other way round; no abuse of semicolons, though. Not solely a coder, at some point he also became familiar with core principles of web design.

His secret dream is to become a professional gamer and live off of tournament winnings, which would make translation no longer a necessity. Unfortunately, with age reflexes fade, no matter how much coffee you drink.
